Despite advances in medical science, bugs such as E. coli will always be one step ahead of us. Every now and then they will emerge with a vengeance as they spread illness and in extreme cases, death. Always try to find out where your produce comes from and never assume that your food is clean.
And, additives aren't going away in the near future and neither are pesticides, antibiotics and hormones. In fact, GM foods will become more prevalent and, without doubt, there is probably a new additive in your food as we speak.
Be vigilant and be your own advocate. You are what you eat!

Honey bee populations have been in alarming decline since 2006. Widespread use of a new class of toxic pesticides, neonicotinoids, is a significant contributing factor.
